Días de días

Hay días en que el sol no sale, en que las nubes nos oprimen la existencia, en que la ciudad nos parece más sola y sucia que nunca, en que no sabemos si las certezas sobre la vida algún día llegaran. Pero después, siempre hay un día en que el sol se asoma, y llegan las ganas de salir, de largas caminatas por paisajes ajenos pero que ya empezamos a conocer, de ver las señales de una prima-vera que se acerca y alegra, y de continuar esa conversación sin fin que una y otra vez nos envuelve.

I was in need of some good pictures of myself for different reasons. Since photo booths have never been really very attractive to me, I decided last weekend to do a photographic session at home. Using a tripod, I managed to get pretty good shots as well as lots of fun.

Making progress?

April is approaching soon, and with it the formal beginning of my doctoral studies at the Institute of Forest and Environmental Policy at the University of Freiburg, Germany. My research project (an earlier Wordle can be seen here) and I are much looking forward to this new stage. We have come together a long way. My thinking about these ideas, I hope, has evolved over time… however, only until now I am going to be able to deeply submerge myself into issues that I am passionate about.

Late snows

… I love snow… but when the time is right for it! In February, it is just too late and too cold…
